Dangerous Drugs in Miami, Florida
Personal Injuries Related to the Use of Dangerous Drugs
While large drug companies have long been the innovators of many breakthrough drugs that have increased the quality of our lives, they have also been responsible for some very damaging drugs that have caused serious injuries, conditions and even loss of life for innocent people. These drugs sometimes slip through drug trials that are designed to make sure a drug is safe to use, and there is some indication that the FDA could approve some drugs for mainstream sales without fully evaluating some of the potential side effects. As the FDA only requires a specific standard for approval of a new medication, allowing for any negative studies to be thrown out and only the positive studies to be submitted, this can create serious problems for innocent consumers who do not realize that there could be grave danger of injury should they take the new drug. There are many recent cases of drug recalls when enough people reported the serious side effects after the drug made it onto the market.
